4 Kansas State vs. 13 Boise-LaSalle winner: They don't wow you, but G Rodney McGruder and the Wildcats will be a tough out, a solid favorite against the first-round winner in Dayton.
3 New Mexico vs. 14 Harvard: The Lobos, a veteran team built around seniors, could make an extended run. Harvard isn't quite as dangerous as a few years ago.
6 Arizona vs. 11 Belmont: The Wildcats are on upset alert after going 5-5 their last 10 games. Belmont, a dangerous mid-major sleeper, is a fashionable upset pick.
7 Notre Dame vs. 10 Iowa State: The hot and cold Irish can be dangerous when they bring their A game but face upset capable Iowa State, the nation's top 3-point team.
2 Ohio State vs. 15 Iona: Thomas and the Buckeyes should roll, but Gaels one again are one of the nation's top scoring teams (80.7 ppg) led by senior G Lamont Jones (23.0 ppg).
